Air pumps – free-to-use bicycle pumps in public spaces – and footrests are some of the cycling products that HITSA can provide to help promote cycle-friendly urban spaces and cycling in general.
A bicycle pump, installed alongside a bicycle rack, provides an extra facility for residents, students and tourists who have opted for cycling as their means of transport. This underlines that the particular municipality or business is cycle-friendly. We offer bicycle pumps for manual use, with pressure generated by a foot pedal, and we also offer pumps with an automatic compressor, operated by pressing a button.
All our bicycle pumps for public use clearly indicate the air pressure, and are safeguarded as much as possible against vandalism.
One of our air pumps features a traditional, almost retro, look. The BORCH pump may bring to mind an old-fashioned petrol pump with its hose hanging down from a holder. It can be powder-coated in any RAL colour. This also enables it to blend in with the colour scheme of a particular design concept or stylistic context. BORCH is available with a compressor.
AROS is an air pump in a more simple and modern design. The pump, together with the AROS bicycle shelter, has been developed in collaboration with Aarhus Municipality. The shape is slim, simple and streamlined. AROS is available as an air pump with compressor and as a manual air pump.
Public bicycle pumps have to stand up to being used by countless different users and being installed in a publicly accessible location. We took this into account in our development work, based on user experiences, among other input. We have given the AROS pump a steel-reinforced hose, and made sure that the nozzle on BORCH cannot be taken apart by inquisitive users.
Our air pump stations have been designed to be installed out of doors. They are made from durable and weather-resistant materials such as stainless steel or hot-dip galvanised, powder-coated steel. The pumps can also be sited under a bicycle shelter, as an added benefit for cyclists. HITSA offers a broad selection of bicycle shelters, which can be designed so that bicycle racks, bicycle shelter and bicycle pumps have a coordinated overall look.
HITSA’s large range of products to promote cycling also includes a footrest.
The footrest has a hand rail and a foot bar, enabling cyclists to remain seated while waiting for lights to turn green. With their foot on the bar, the cyclist can easily push off again after stopping. In large cities with lots of bicycle traffic, footrests provide a very useful facility for cyclists.
Here at HITSA we are keen supporters of cycling as a means of transport. Our business is founded on production of bicycle parking products, and we have been involved in developing cycling products for many years. We offer Denmark’s largest range of cycling products. Consequently, we have built up extensive knowledge and experience regarding layout of urban cycling facilities, cycle routes and bicycle parking.
